|Health Industry Knowledge for our Nurses
We have a qualified Recruitment Consultants that can help you work through what you would like to do and what is on offer in your chosen area.

|Local Knowledge of Placement Locations
We've been to a lot of the locations we send you to so we can tell you what you need to take, what's available for entertainment, and assist with all the uninteresting stuff that everybody else forgets like banking facilities, medical supplies, internet connections etc. Your Australian nursing job may take you out the back of beyond, but we'll help you be prepared....more
You'll also be able to check our each working destination via the Destination Profiles in your online account with CQ Nurse, so you'll have a heads-up about local attractions, transport facilities and other helpful information to help you plan for your next work destination.
|Informal Buddy System
New to the agency? We offer to hook you up with somebody that has been to your placement location, or is there now - they can share their experiences and give you some valuable insight into what it's all about. And we know that sometimes being away from home can create some distress - your buddy can help you with this, or we can keep in contact with you more frequently.
We can organize and/or advise travel arrangements so you don't have to go to Timbuktu to get to Townsville! Wherever your nursing job takes you in Australia - we'll get you there in a timely and comfortable manner.
